[PATCH 3.18 024/124] sparc/ptrace: Preserve previous registers for short regset write




3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Dave Martin <Dave.Martin@xxxxxxx>

commit d3805c546b275c8cc7d40f759d029ae92c7175f2 upstream.

Ensure that if userspace supplies insufficient data to PTRACE_SETREGSET
to fill all the registers, the thread's old registers are preserved.
